01. [38] Lawrence of Arabia
-> 228 min, come on!...plus I've bought Thomas E. Lawrence's "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" ages ago and I've always thought I'd like to read it before watching the film, which is even more dreadful timewise...

02. [33] The Wizard of Oz
-> I'm not into surrealistic stuff like Alice in Wonderland etc. so I don't think I could enjoy the tiniest bit of an old and corny film like this...

03. [30] Gone with the Wind
-> 238 min, (of romantico-melodramatic stuff!) come on!

04. [30] Goodfellas
-> 146 min, come on! plus I don't like any Scorsese movie (The Departed was OK though, but it's not even an original plot)

05. [29] The Bridge on the River Kwai
-> 161 min, again! come on David, you have to make the first step, I don't!

06. [29] La Grande Illusion
-> I have it on DVD but the sound is AWFUL and despite being a French speaker I couldn't understand a word they were saying...I'll have to watch this with subtitles some day but I'm procrastinating this one

07. [29] On the Waterfront
-> probably my next 20+ list movie to watch

08. [28] Alien
-> yeah, some day, when I'll convince my wife to watch it (I think I couldn't possibly like it if I watch it alone)

09. [28] It Happened One Night
-> meh, I feel like having seen one Capra is having seen every Capra

10. [27] King Kong
-> same meh feeling I have with The Wizard of Oz, it FEELS already outdated in my mind, not the last one of these 10 I'll check, but not too excited

Poor pitch. Top 10 ain't going to change much for him. :lol:

I don't know, there are some wildly popular and important films on your list, I for one am naturally interested in those. I just couldn't imagine ignoring them for so many years. But hey, that grants you more time to focus on the things you really like. Also not too bad.

Too many people who dislike long films. :o Plus too many people who dislike short films. :o This is probably why we don't have enough of either in our favorites list, and it's all boring 60-180 minute schlock.
Here's to the fools who dream.

That's something I have been working on but I work 5-6 hours a day + following a degree to be Data Analyst which takes me 3-4 more hours a day. It's rare to have 3+ hours free at once.

I have been gifted the new 7-hour release of La Roue in January and I'm currently watching it but I can't do this in less than 4 separate parts (there are four discs), especially La Roue which is so heavy-handed and melodramatic (I mean, Abel Gance made the locomotive speak "Oh...Oui...Sisif!") The longest cuts are not always the best ones, I guess

Not enough long films that spend their time wisely I'm afraid. Most of them are just a regular film and then that again.

Before joining iCM and its system of official lists, I never had the feeling that "The Wizard of Oz" or "Gone with the Wind" were such important movies, I mean not to the point that it would be super weird not to have seen them. Maybe that's a French bias, I don't know, they seem mostly important to the American culture but not to the world culture

Wizard of Oz more so than Gone with the Wind I think. But maybe that's because as a kid I loved that Japanese cartoon version. But Oz seems more embedded in pop culture at least, also outside of the US. Gone with the Wind is just that film really.

Ironically so, since I've watched most from Bresson, Yang and Visconti, though, I admit, I'm extremely stubborn when it comes to specific book-to-film instances: it so happens that I've been meaning to read both Tin Drum and Forbidden Games, prior to watching them :whistling: :woot:

I'm surprised you didn't take out Apu together with the other two of the trilogy.

Otherwise, many silent films / early talkies left for you. You could watch Andalou 20 times or Napoleon once .. :lol:

Probably only the same 115-year-olds who've also seen Arirang and London After Midnight, and have attics full of Picassos they bought from the artist for 25 francs.

Otherwise, many silent films / early talkies left for you. You could watch Andalou 20 times or Napoleon once .. :lol:
Honestly didn't even watch the other two together. I saw Pathar Panchali years before Aparajito. I got to that one when I spent some time focused on 1956 5 or 6 years ago while I probably saw Panthar 10-15 years ago. . Haven't really done the same for 1959 but I do plan to get to World of Apu at some point. I like Ray's films that I have seen a lot, though my favorite is The Music Room. I was hoping to get to the Chess Players last month for the Doubling the Canon challenge but didn't end up getting to it.

Huh what happened there. Losing 1 or 2 IMDb genre lists is possible, but otherwise? Rotten Tomatoes? Did the forum fanlists (Fok et al) fuck up? Hmm.
Hurts to see you losing a 40+ lists film due to reasons you're not responsible for. Stay strong, brother.

I know there's a second thread with this theme and I posted my last diary entry there. 3 more or less Asian films (Japanese, Chinese & Iranian) gain some score due to the new Asian lists, that's the only change for me I know. Shoah is an unwatched giant on top of my watchlist for .. 10 years or so? Yep, a decade.

Shoah is an incredible watch, but one of the heaviest I've ever gone through. Even LONG films I usually try to do in one sitting, I'll wait for a time that's possible. That just wasn't happening here. It was broken up into 4 or 5 sittings and even that was hard.
